43 Captivating Pics Where Tiny Details Make All The Difference

As the old saying goes, God is in the detail! Or is it, the Devil is in the detail? Either way, the point is that there is an incredibly important figure residing in the minute details of the world around us.

Most of us, however, live our lives in a hurry, and miss the fine details which can make the world so interesting! So, in the spirit of revealing to you some moments in which taking in all of the details is crucial, here are 14+ captivating pics where tiny details make all the difference!

"The way this truck is painted to look like it's open"

Reddit | FreddiePrinzeJr4Life

I wonder how many people have razzed alongside them to warn them that their stuff is about to fall out of the back. I bet this got real old, real quick.

"Bee walking trail on fogged glass"

Reddit | BlueGreyish

Someone sadly pointed out that this was a "death march" due to the fact that bees shouldn't leave the hive when the temperature is below 55 degrees. So, what you are seeing there is the final journey of one of natures greatest creations.

"Horse with bright blue eyes"

Reddit | Canman990

That live-action BoJack Horseman remake is looking stunning! They really captured the human eyes! Although, it does feel like it's staring into my soul.

"My maths lecturer wearing an infinite tie version of himself"

Reddit | QueenChoco

One person who also had this lecturer explained that this guy wears a different tie every day to university. People have apparently kept notes on it to make sure that he doesn't repeat a tie!

"This wasp blowing a water bubble reflecting a rose"

Reddit | Mass1m01973

This was taken by photographer Lim Choo How. I know for a fact that any picture I take for the rest of my life, will never be even half as amazing as this piece of photography!

"For some reason, my gecko shed everything but his eyebrows"

Reddit | fightthesounds

I don't know what it is that caused this delightful little quirk in your gecko, but the world is a better place for it existing! Just look at his overly expressive face!

"How an overnight freeze squeezed water out of the ground and froze it at one of our job sites"

Reddit | swolerpower

Apparently this phenomenon is called Frost Heaving, it is an upwards swelling of soil during freezing conditions which is due to increased pressure in ice as it grows towards the surface. So there, you've learned something new!

"My girlfriends cat has two different colored eyes and they reflect different colors when recorded"

Reddit | Chazmandar

David Bowie was apparently reincarnated as a cat. Strange really, I always thought he'd come back as a monarch butterfly.

"Gorgeous picture of my son and me, ruined by one tiny little detail"

Reddit | tylerjfrancke

One helpful Redditor actually created a "buttless" version on photoshop which the person who posted this said would be going in a frame! See, the internet can occasionally have people using it to be nice to each other!

"This McDonald's only has one Arch."

Reddit | se7enx

NcDonalds doesn't quite have the same ring as McDonalds, does it? Apparently, some "restaurants" prefer the single arch look, they are clearly the hipster McDonalds restaurants.

"This doll's head I found in the creek has moss growing on it's head which looks like hair."

Reddit | TidingsOfThePig

Good to see that toy companies are making their products greener!

"Illegal photo, off-limits shop in North Korea."

Reddit | M1ckey

They went on to explain that they had sneakily managed to catch this moment in a 15-second window when their tour guide hadn't realized they'd wandered off. Amazing that such a seemingly banal photo could be considered illegal!

"I just finished this puzzle that doesn't have a picture"

Reddit | rakatari

What an amazingly purposeful use of your time and effort! In fairness, it does look like an awfully relaxing puzzle, or completely infuriating, one of the two!

Under The Microscope


This may look like an alien landscape, but it's actually a piece of sun-dried tomato.

"My black rescue kitten is slowly turning white/gray"

Reddit | ECCE_M0N0

One person explained that this is called a fever coat. It can apparently be caused by the mother cat being sick, or if the mother cat was placed on medication during the pregnancy.

"The detail in the sculpture"

Reddit | MRL78

To create something with such precision is astounding. It just looks like actual skin contorting under touch, truly spectacular!

The Devil Is In The Details

Reddit | lacrimedoctor

Sometimes you just need to take a moment to appreciate a clever bit of marketing. This hot sauce really leans into its theme by providing an itty-bitty bible with every bottle.

"My Popeye's receipt has a Burger King logo on it"

Reddit | dumbdotcom

One person who was remarkably well informed about printers (a sentence that I never thought I'd say) explained "The burger king logo was probably stored in non-volatile memory and whoever acquired the printer did not know how to override it."

Wow, bet you're gonna be telling all your friends about that in the pub!

Natural Art

Reddit | gabawhee

This leaf is being eaten by bugs, but it's turned it into a really cool abstract art piece.

"This HP sauce bottle with Big Ben in scaffolding"

Reddit | korgg

Yes, HP Sauce has been putting scaffolding on their famous Big Ben packaging while the construction on the actual Big Ben is happening.

This Is Not An Empty Bowl

Reddit | -Fenon

It's actually full of soup, but the tasty lunch perfectly matches the color of the container. It's really cool and yet sort of unsettling.

So Many Layers

Reddit | goldenhairedangel

This is a piece of what's called "Fordite" or "Detroit agate." It's actually layers of automotive paint that builds up during vehicle assembly.

Real Life Depth Of Field

Reddit | my-dog-is-on-fire

You know how photographs never quite look like real life because the background isn't as in focus as the subject? The screen in this window actually makes the view look like that, even though it's looking out at the real yard.

Lost In Translation

Reddit | Delphine39

I'm going to give this the benefit of the doubt and assume that when this disposable underwater camera says "body parts will not be returned" it means that when you take the camera for photo developing, you don't get the camera itself back.

(That whole paragraph probably baffled anyone born after 1995.)

Trashy Camouflage

Reddit | quacked7

This is a tiny lacewing larva that has piled bits of dust and debris on top of itself to hide from predators.

Unimpressed Room Service

Reddit | Growingagain

I hope that the room service tasted good, because that lid is totally giving you that look where it's almost entirely neutral, and yet still judgey. 😐

Better Off Not Noticing

Reddit | theundeadfairy

Sometimes, you don't really want to see the details, even if it's important. Like when you realize this tilting pole is being propped up by a bungee cord.

Cleverly Repurposed

Reddit | TheNillaGorilla

Sure, this is a Target, but if you look closer, you can see the details that reveal the building's previous life as a bowling alley. The red balls out front are even bowling balls.

Simple Optical Illusion

Reddit | sarajosaurus

If you close your right eye, focus on the larger dot with your left eye, and then slowly move your screen closer to your face, the smaller dot will magically disappear.

Sadly, this doesn't actually work for me because of my strabismus, but it sounds pretty cool.


Reddit | mexipirate

Who needs Photoshop when you have some really good scissor skills? At a glance, no one would even notice.

"My cat had all black kittens"

Reddit | justabirdinacage

The person who posted this wrote that all of the kittens have been adopted now, probably due to the amount of people who wanted them all for themselves!

"These street benches in Buenos Aires are made of cement."

Reddit | vragal

Look at that incredible detail! You'd swear you could sit down on a plush, cushioned throne but instead you'll be perched on a cement block. Absolutely stunning.

"The way these pillars crumble on these volumes of The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire."

Reddit | MuonicDecay

This is actually pretty cool! Little attention to detail like this is always super interesting to spot.

"Each floor has a pattern corresponding to the floor number."

Reddit | MoneySlow

I especially like how each level incorporated that floor number into the design, although I can't help but notice the dramatic jump from 4 to 25 there. But they just proceeded with 6 like nothing happened.

"This bathroom is full of photoshopped pictures of Mr. Bean."

Reddit | lafschidctid

Honestly I didn't know my life was missing a photo-shopped picture of Mr. Bean as Harry Potter until now. Truly iconic.

"Frozen Jack and Coke Machine."

Reddit | unintentionalartist

Now this is the kind of Slurpee machine I like to see! Noice you can also get a cherry-Bacardi mix? I need this in my apartment ASAP.

"Buzz and Woody hanging off the back of a truck."

Reddit | puertorico51st

I didn't notice them right away but sure enough, there they are trying to recreate the ending of the very first Toy Story movie. It's been 24 years since you guys first did that stunt. I don't think you should really try it again at your ages.

"This dog blanket I bought has a dog with a wheelchair."

Reddit | Meca_Osprey

This is just so beautiful. Yes, I might be crying a little but look at how happy he is among all his friends. What a good doggo.

"Accordion bus with actual accordion image."

Reddit | rum_dogg

This is a picture of an opportunity seized if I've ever seen one.

"Our fertility clinic gives out pens with sperms that 'swim' to an egg."

Reddit | Sane_Tuesday

I like this pen simply because of how amazing it would be to loan it to one of those kids in lecture who always forgets their own pen, and then watching them realize what's going on in the end there. Didn't think you'd be learning about biology in Psych 101, did you?

"Barnum's Animal Crackers are no longer in a cage."

Reddit | bopjicky

Good for them. It was about time someone let those magnificent animals out of their cages.

"My eraser is so old it was made in West Germany"

Reddit | NotableAlmond

This eraser has probably seen more amazing things in its life than I have. And that is truly depressing!

The Ink On This Finger


Yes, while this may look like the start of an apocalyptic pandemic movie, this is just ink settling in the cracks in the skin. Our bodies are so much more intricate than we often realize.
